"Far Too Long," another brand new song from the progressive/power metal act Katagory V can be streamed through the band's ReverbNation page. The track will appear on the bands upcoming fifth album, Resurrect The Insurgence.
Comments bassist Dustin Mitchell: "We know it has been rather quiet in the Katagory V camp, and many have been wondering when the new album will be released, but rest assured we are still fighting the good fight, and the new album will be delivered in good time. However, it has been difficult to nail down a release date in the current state of the industry with the constant changes abound. Never the less, we are still alive!
"A few months back we uploaded a new song from the upcoming album Resurrect The Insurgence, which was completed earlier this year with the help of producer Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69, Angra, Primal Fear), and felt it was time to throw out another musical morsel from the new album out there for everyone to test drive.
Lyrically, 'Far Too Long' Is about the ending of a very long relationship with someone, the ripple effect that it causes, the expectations from those around you, and the changes that need to be overcome. This song was written four years ago, and only recently, became self-prophesying for myself, which I found to be rather ironic.
"Musically, this song is a very straight ahead, very melancholy track with a bit of an AOR approach. Dennis and I joked that this would be our radio hit if such a thing existed for the band, or in general these days, as it is by far the most accessible song on the album. It has many of the classic Katagory V progressive trademarks with the phrasings and structures, however with a lot more emphasis on melody and hook. Once again, our influences are very apparent here in this song and we are very proud of how this turned out. It musically and emotionally compliments the lyrical content.
"We picked this next song to show the fans another side of the band, as well as the more melodic direction we are taking with the new album. We feel that the production and performance of this song highlights the album as a whole. We hope you enjoy it!"
